I was one of two selected emerging curators for the inaugural No Longer Empty Curatorial Lab (NLE LAB), a new program of the arts organization No Longer Empty . Through this intensive two-month program, co-curator Jessica Wallen and I organized all aspects of a site-specific art exhibition, and related public programming, at a formerly-vacant storefront on 24 West 8th Street in Greenwich Village. Entitled "Gathering Place," this exhibit brought together 11 contemporary artists exploring the street and neighborhood's unique history of commerce and culture, and envisioning 8th Street's rebirth as a mixed-use destination corridor, engaging the community in critical dialogue around its future.
